Accrual Accounting and the Financial Statements 4 The Time-Period Concept (Periodicity) n Income and financial position of a business are reported periodically, not until the end of life of a business.
Income Measurement And Profit Analysis 5 Revenue Recognition Principle (SFAS No. 5) (-An Accrual Basis) n Revenue is recognized when it is earned and realized. n Earned : the entity has substantially accomplished what it must do to be entitled to compensation. n Realized: goods are exchanged for cash or claims. n In general, these conditions are met at time of sale (delivery) or when services are rendered regardless whether cash is collected or not.
Accrual Accounting and the Financial Statements 6 The Matching Principle n If revenues are recognized in a period, all related expenses should be recognized in the same period regardless whether expenses are paid or not. n The related expenses include traceable costs (i.e., product costs), period costs, (i.e., interest and rent expenses) and estimated/allocation expenses (i.e., depreciation expense and bad debt expense).
Accrual Accounting and the Financial Statements 7 Accrual vs. Cash Basis Accounting n Accrual-basis accounting: Revenues are recognized based on revenue recognition principle (i.e., recognized when realized and earned regardless whether cash is collected or not). Expenses are recognized based on matching principle. Note: revenue and expense recognize before cash settlement.
Accrual vs. Cash Basis Accounting (contd.) Cash-basis accounting: The accountant does not record a transaction until cash is received or paid. Cash-basis accounting is NOT acceptable for financial reporting. Accrual Accounting and the Financial Statements 8
